Trib Talk: Does Utah’s plan to clean the air go far enough?
First Published Oct 08 2013 08:00 am • Last Updated Oct 31 2013 12:50 pm

They’re targeting wood burning, vehicle emissions and refinery pollution in an exhaustive five-year proposal to cut particulate pollution and they’re holding hearings this week to get public input.

But will the plan sweep the air clean enough and what will it cost?
